This particular Hair Fork was the request of several customers who had "Special" up-do's that needed a Five Inch Length with an FPL of Four Inches. So I made a bunch for them and extras for the rest of you..... I hope it fits the bill !! The last picture shows some of the color variations the wood comes in.
This 5 Inch Laos Rosewood 2-Prong Hair Fork is curved to fit the contour of your head and is a compliment to my other Laos "Rustic Heavy Duty Laos Hair Fork" and differs in that although it is 5 Inches long and lighter it has a longer FPL of a FULL 4 Inches. This Curved Laos Rosewood Hair Fork is made for those who want a smaller hair fork that is strong yet holds well, is not heavy so it can be used with thinner hair. It is only 1 1/8 " wide; 5" long and less than 3/16" thick. The pictures do not do justice to this Hair Fork.
This Hair Fork is for those with Light, thin hair as the fork is light and strong and holds well.
The Functional Prong Length (FPL) is a FULL Four " for this 2-Prong Hair Fork and varies within 1/8" from piece to piece.
This Laos Rosewood (Dalbergia Sp.) is very heavy and hard. The color is a deep red with blackish grain streaks running through the wood. The color range can run from a pinkish hue up to a dark red almost a purple.
This smaller and lighter Laos Rosewood 2 prong Hair Fork should now be added to my "Rustic Heavy Duty" line I have introduced before and will continue to expand in the near future . The line now includes Six Different Laos Rosewood Hair Forks as follows :
1) 4 7/8" Curved Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1 /4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
2) 4 3/4" Curved Two Prong Hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
3) 5 7/8" Straight Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
4) 5 3/4" Straight Two Prong hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
5) 4 1/2" Curved Two Prong hair Fork 1" wide and 3/16" thick with FPL of 3 3/4"
6) 5 " Curved Two Prong Hair Fork 1 1/8" Wide and 3/16" thick with FPL of 4 "
These Hair forks are being made out of Laos Rosewood and/or Striped Ebony so there are twelve different listings here on Etsy .
The Hair Forks are finished with a lacquer coating and rubbed out to a semi-gloss finish and waxed with Johnson Paste wax.
The last picture shows several different colors and grain patterns and is just to show the variety that this Hair Fork may come in. The listing is for only one Hair Fork.

As a matter of caution some of the Forks will be sharper then some people like and I therefore recommend that you blunt the tip with an emery board to the degree of sharpness you want.
If you find any of my Hair Forks not to your liking I will take them back.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Shipping from United States
At the present time I only ship to the USA due to negative Customs experiences I have had in the past.
I ship either US Priority Mail or US First Class mail depending upon the items weight. I try to ship the same day but because of my location in Hawaii your package will usually ship the following day as long as it is not a Sunday or Holiday.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?
I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.
I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.

This is my absolute favorite of all my hair sticks! Its finish is so lovely. It fits the curve of my head perfectly and never snags my strands. I've made more purchases from this Etsy store since buying this fork and each item is exceptional in it's quality.

I love these hair forks! I had one that I’d been using for years, but it finally broke. I didn’t think I’d be able to find one I liked as much, but I like these even better. The size is just right to hold all my hair up, and they aren’t so long that they stab people in the face when I’m giving a hug. Lol. They look delicate, but are actually very strong. I am very pleased with this purchase, and would definitely buy from this seller again.

Lovely fork! The shop owner kindly gave me an extra hair stick as well. Both are very good quality.

Arrived much earlier than I expected! The wood is smooth and glides through the hair. My only minor critique is that it doesn't hold as tight as I'd wish because my hair is so straight, fine, and silky it tends to slide out after 30 minutes or so but it's so easy to but back up it's no big deal. I also got an aluminum pin as a surprise gift, thanks! I keep one at home and one at work.
